Pune, 21st December 2022: A case was registered against former Commissioner of Pune Police Rashmi Shukla for illegally tapping the phones of leaders of various political parties across the state. A charge sheet was filed against her, and an investigation was conducted.

However, after the Shinde government came to power in Maharashtra, the phone-tapping charges against Shukla were withdrawn. However, the court has rejected the closure report submitted by the Pune police in this case. Apart from that, the decision given by the court is being considered a blow to the Shinde-Fadnavis government.

As per the case, Shukla had tapped the phones of various political leaders of the state when she was the head of the Maharashtra state intelligence department (SID). They included Congress state president Nana Patole, MLA Bachu Kadu, former MP Sanjay Kakade, MLA Ashish Deshmukh, and former opposition leader Eknath Khadse. A case was registered against Shukla at Bund Garden police station in February this year. She was being investigated by the Pune Police.

However, after coming to power in the state, the Shinde-Fadnavis government stopped the ongoing investigation against Shukla. The Pune Police had submitted a closure report to the court to close the case. However, the court issued that report on Wednesday.

Shukla is currently serving in Hyderabad. After the change of power in the state, she met Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in Delhi. Allegedly, the closure report was submitted to the court by the Pune police to stop their investigation only after that.
